In the oven & on my needles!

 

Spring is in the air in NY! After a nice Sunday morning walk, it’s knitting & cooking for the rest of the day. I’m making a few meals, for the week – including roasted chicken and turkey meatloaf.

1 lb of ground Turkey – you can make a larger loaf with more Turkey.

Add 1 medium onion, chopped

1 egg

1/2 of a Green/Red/Yellow Pepper (diced)

3 cloves of fresh garlic

1/2 t of both garlic powder & onion powder

1 t of Mustard (whichever you prefer) 1 t of Ketchup

1/2 cup of raw Oatmeal

Salt & Black Pepper

Cover in foil and bake at 350 – approx 35 -45 minutes or until done.

You cna make a sauce to cover the meatloaf using ketchup, mustard to cover the entire loaf and bake during the last 1o minutes.

My current WIP:

On my circular needles: the Red White & Blue newborn baby hats (for our hospital charity project). I had a random ball in my stash but this Red Heart Yarn batch is years old and has shorter color striping resulting in a spiral look.

Americana

Working with Red Heart Yarn, “Americana” self striping Red White & Blue making newborn baby hats for one of my charity projects.  Lois, a member of my Stitch & Bitch collects baby hats for the newborn babies of White Plains Hospital.  We often make hats with holiday theme colors. She came up with the brilliant idea to make these inclusivity hats as a “welcome to America” for the newborn babies. Red Heart Yarn can be found at any yarn store & places like Walmart for $2.88 a skein (in NY). One skein makes 3 hats.

I will glady accept yarn donations from anyone in the Westchester County in the NY area.

 

Something good…

I had to remind myself to breathe…just breathe  as I watched the elections.

I am grateful to be able to practice my hobby of Crochet. I brought out my Christmas colored yarn and stitched like crazy making these.

Something good came out of that night after all: Christmas baby hats – for a local Hospital maternity ward.

WIP on my H hook…

Newborn size vs teeny preemie size…
